Iced Watermelon Shake in Action

My Pink Castle Fabrics Blogger's Bundle has been sitting near my sewing machine for the last week or more.  It has been calling my name.  You may have already seen the red/white Chevron blocks made last week using two of the fabrics from the Blogger's Bundle, and so here is the rest.


I am really enjoying how nicely these fabrics, colors, and blocks are coming together as work is progressing.


I even love the blocks made from the black polka dot fabric on a white background; which I initially didn't think would work with this traditional block design.  It is probably my favorite block now alongside the Chevron print blocks.


 It's back to the sewing machine for now.

Have a great week,
Rita

  11. Hi Rita,
    I love these colors, thanks for sharing. I receive your blog by email, and just thought I would mention that the links are not visible.... for example, the blog I received today (April 18th) says “My (then there is a white space) has been sitting…”. If I hover my mouse over that spot I can tell there is a link there, but it does not show anything to read. Thanks for sharing your work. Lareeinbc

  12. Hi. Rita, In our shop we call this quilt design "donut holes"! LOL! Isn't it a great design for modern and traditional fabrics. The white ground makes those lively colors pop beautifully. Great job. Cheers. Lauren
